2009 Competition Sport Corvette

2009 Chevrolet Corvette Competition Sport Edition

For Corvette enthusiasts, ‘Z06’ has always carried a special allure. Originally the package one got if they were destined for the track in their C2 Corvette, it took a long sabbatical from the option list before returning as the hottest version of the C5 Corvette as a hardtop-only model that was both the lightest and most powerful in the lineup. With the C6 Corvette, the Z06 returned as the lightest and most powerful version of the newest Corvette also brought the 7-liter V8 back into the fold—a displacement that had been missing from the Corvette lineup for over three decades.

For 2009, Chevy unveiled the ZR-1—a monster of a machine with 145 extra, supercharged ponies. But in keeping with the ethos of the Z06, they brought out a new Competition Sport package (RPO CSC) for the purist enthusiast who wanted to channel the track driving experience. The rare package featured Competition Gray stripes with matching headlight buckers and aluminum wheels, an Ebony leather interior with titanium embroidery, Corvette racing pedals from GCA, a special engine cover, Corvette Racing ‘Jake’ and CSR logos applied to the B-pillars and embroidered on the headrests and center armrest, as well as a racing-style roundel number featuring the edition number of the car that could be installed by the owner. Available on either standard or Z06 models, only 72 Competition Sport Package Corvettes were ordered.

Chevrolet introduced the limited production Competition Sport package for both the 2009 Corvette coupe and the Z06, bringing the look of Corvette’s racing team to their non-ZR1 offerings, if not quite the performance. Both the Z06 and Coupe 1LT Vettes ordered with the Competition Sport package will get a track focus, which includes competition stripes, wheels and headlamps, an ebony interior, Corvette racing pedals and a special engine cover.

Any Coupe 1LT ordered with the package will also get the Z51 performance package, performance exhaust, differential cooler, HUD, Z06 spoiler and other goodies, bringing the power to 436 HP and actually increasing the performance.
